It's official, Papaw has company! The cookout for a man named "The Internet's Grandpa" was a success. The family of Papaw decided to throw the cookout after a tweet went viral. Hundreds showed up to have a burger with the internet sensation and maybe slip into an "I had a burger with sad Papaw" T-shirt.

According to KFOR, Papaw's family said they cannot believe that so many people were excited about the cookout.
One family member said people came from all over the country to eat with Papaw, some even coming all the way from Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, California, and even Germany.
